Secretive Spotted Towhee
Well, the cold weather means I haven’t taken my camera with me on walks. I also haven’t done a bird-related post in a while so thought I’d highlight one of my favourite birds from the summer – the Spotted Towhee. For those who aren’t too keen on birds, here’s hoping the weather warms up a bit soon. 🙂
My Sibley Birds West book describes the spotted towhee as secretive as it likes to be on the ground among the leaves and bushes searching for food. I love their eyes and the guilty look on this one is what piqued my interest. Birds with personality are fun to photograph!
There were a number of young ones in Kelowna and they enjoyed the willow tree.
The females have a greyish head, whereas the males are black on top.
I look forward to the spring and the birds returning and can’t wait to see what expressions I will capture next year.
Thanks for reading!
